MisterMo......Mine would often blow if we both operated our shades at the same time. It used a 5amp fuse which I eventually changed to a 7.5. More than likely, the cat held it on as you said and blew the fuse.
Mine is located in that outside run bay under the driver's window, but isn't labeled as the power shade. Monaco does this on many fuses. I eventually bought a small tester that comes with a fuse pack at Pep Boys, Walmart or other auto stores. It's about the size of your thumb and has two adjustable prongs at one end that adjust to the size of large or small fuses. You just touch the prongs to the exposed metal at the rear of the fuses, while they're still in place, and it will tell you if the fuse is good or bad, by lighting a small green LED.
This little tool has come in very handy checking those 50+ fuses in the run bay.
